Weekly Astrology Forecast – May 11 – 17, 2020

Excerpt from PatreonMars enters Pisces on May 13, signalling a change in the way we go after our goals and pursue our desires. Pisces is soft, compassionate, watery, emotional – vastly different to Mars’s naturally fiery nature. Goals may be more fluid or we’re unsure of what we want. However, when we get clear about our mission, we’re likely to use imaginative strategies to achieve what we set out to do.  The biggest challenge during this time is the temptation to give up or believe we are defeated before we start. This transit can dissipate energy and evoke a ‘what’s the point’ response. The highest expression of Mars in Pisces is something akin to ‘doing God’s work’. When we act on our intuition and put our energies into endeavours that help others, we find that we can easily go with the flow.
